Why was Merlin Season 6 cancelled

Merlin was one of the famous and interesting film so far regardless of the ending point.

UPDATES:

There’s some indication that the show may actually have been cancelled as the producers had been negotiating the possibility of a sixth season and/or movies. Either way, season five will be the end for Merlin.

As suspected, the fifth season of Merlinwill be the TV show’s last. The news was confirmed today by a press released issued by the BBC. Merlin is produced overseas and licensed worldwide. It’s seen on Syfy here in the states.

The fifth and final season of Merlin is currently airing in the UK and the two-part series finale will air at Christmas. Syfy will begin airing the 13 episodes of season fiveon Friday, January 4th. The series finale is expected to then air in late March.

Well it looks like BBC’s fantasy drama Merlin will be magically disappearing after season 5 – just when the series was really starting to pick up. Merlin will conclude its epic five year journey this Christmas with a two-part series finale which the cast promises will leave fans breathless.

BBC’s adaption of Merlin took a similar route as the CW’s Smallville did with Superman, by taking their iconic characters at an early stage of their heroic development. Merlin starts off as a young servant boy who soon climbs the ranks to become the then Prince Arthur’s unlikely best friend and confidant – all while hiding his budding magical abilities, which have been outlawed by the king. In a similar Smallvillesque fashion, the series’ main villain, the Lady Morgana, started out as trusted friend but soon turned to fearsome foe.
